If you work with plastic components that are subject to outdoor exposure, this video will enhance your understanding of the interaction between UV radiation-based weathering and plastic resins, and help you prevent the components’ premature failure.

Topics covered include an introduction to UV degradation and an explanation of the failure mechanism characteristic of UV radiation/plastic interaction. Case studies associated with UV radiation exposure will be presented.
